Below is some general information about The Heights:
Houston Heights (often referred to simply as The Heights) is a community located in northwest-central Houston, Texas. The Heights is often referred to colloquially to describe a larger collection of neighborhoods adjacent to and including the actual Houston Heights. However, Houston Heights has its own history, distinct from Norhill and Woodland Heights.
The Houston Heights, one of the earliest planned communities in Texas, is located 4 miles northwest of Downtown Houston. A National Geographic article says stroll the area’s broad, tree-canopied esplanades and side streets dotted with homes dating from the early 1900s and you may think you’ve landed in a small town. John Nova Lomax said that the Heights, which he describes as Houston’s own mini-Austin, had many low-key restaurants and beer gardens. The Houston Heights Association describes the Heights as being bounded by Interstate 10 on the south, North Shepherd Drive on the west, Interstate 610 on the north and both North Main and Studewood Streets on the east. According to a study of the University of Houston Institute of Regional Forecasting and Crawford Realty Advisors, from 2002 to 2003 prices of single family houses appreciated by 8.7 percent. Anjali Athavalley said real estate agents say most houses there costing less than $200,000 need serious work and buying a single-family house in the Houston Heights, for example, is getting expensive.
The Houston Fire Department operates Station 15 Heights in the Northside district, near the Houston Heights. It is a part of Fire District 6. Fire Station 15 moved to Houston Avenue and North Main in 1918 and North Main at Tabor in 1942. The current station at Dunbar and North Main opened in 1999. The Houston Police Department’s Central Patrol Division serves the neighborhood. The Heights Storefront is located at 910 North Durham.
The Houston Heights Association was organized in 1973 by residents and business owners to work together toward maintaining the quality of life and preserving the historic character of the community. The association owns several properties, one of which is Marmion Park, which is at the original location of the Cooley mansion, one of the first houses built in Houston Heights. The house was demolished in 1965. The land was purchased in 1979 by the Houston Heights Association for the purpose of constructing Marmion Park, named in honor of the last mayor of Houston Heights, J. B. Marmion. The Houston Heights Woman’s Club was founded in 1900, and constructed its own club building in 1912, which is still in use. Members were active in the suffrage movement, and later, during both World Wars volunteered the club for use by the Red Cross. Today the club volunteers in efforts to improve the Heights neighborhood, in particular mentoring children and assisting the elderly.
The Heights is served by Houston Independent School District. It is in Trustee District I, represented by Natasha Kamrani as of 2009. HISD’s Central Region offices were located in the Houston Heights in the former Holden Elementary building. Prior to Houston ISD’s 2005 reorganization, the North Central District was headquartered in the Cooley Facility in the Heights. Elementary schools that serve portions of the Houston Heights include Crockett, Field, Harvard, Helms Community Learning Center, Love, and Sinclair. Middle schools that serve portions of the Houston Heights include Hamilton and Hogg. High schools that serve portions of the Houston Heights include Reagan High School and Waltrip High School. In 2001 Field Elementary had 52% of its population declared by the state as “at risk,” 94% qualifying for free or reduced lunches, and 42% speaking limited English. In 2011 the HISD board approved the creation of a Mandarin Chinese-language immersion magnet school in the former Holden Elementary. As of January 2012, the plans changed, and now the Mandarin Chinese Language Immersion Magnet School was to open in Bellaire.
